Beauty products make the best stocking stuffers! I’ve rounded up my favorite (tiny sized) makeup, skin and nail products under $25. Im bringing you a mix of everyday essentials and travel sized versions of the products I can’t live without! All these universal items can be enjoyed/appreciated by everyone, regardless of their style or skin type!
All beauty stocking stuffers come highly recommended and have been tested by yours truly.
Make Up Forever Mist & Fix ($14): This setting spray is a crucial part of my everyday makeup routine. It shields your skin and helps to keep your makeup in place. It also serves as a great moistening spray to keep that “dewy” look throughout the day. You can read why I love it so much here.
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder ($22): Quite possibly my favorite product EVER. This finishing powered leaves your skin with a perfecting “photo filter” finish. The travel size compact is great to keep in your purse for when you’re on the go! Read more here.
Sally Hansen Mega Shine ($5): This is the best topcoat on the market. Not only does it extend your polishes staying power, it also has the shiniest finish. One coat and you’ll look like you just left the salon. See how I use this product here.
Josie Maran Argan Oil ($16): A mini version of my favorite moisturizer for winter! If you know someone struggling with dry skin, this is the perfect gift…and it’s all natural. In addition to hydrating your skin, this product has many other benefits, including anti-aging properties. I wrote a full post about my love for this oil here.
Essie Gel Couture Nail Polish (11.50): This is THE BEST nail polish on the market (in my opinion.) Not only does it give you the look of a salon-perfect mani, it’s fast drying and super easy to apply. To see how to achieve the perfect “at home gel manicure” using this product, click here.
Wet Brush ($16): Another product I use every day. This wet brush glides through any hair type, brushing out tangles and knots effortlessly. It’s meant to be used right out of the shower, prior to your blow-dry.
Beauty Blender ($20): If the person you’re buying for uses a liquid foundation or tinted moisturizer, you must buy them a Beauty Blender! This little sponge is considered a miracle product in the beauty world and has been a game changer for makeup application. Read how it works here.
Sephora Collection Eyelash Curler ($18): Every girl’s best friend – the eyelash curler. This fun and festive version is designed to fit all eye shapes for long-lasting curl. For a tip on how to curl your lashes, click here.
FAB Ultra Repair Lip Therapy ($12): First Aid Beauty is quickly becoming one of my favorite skincare lines and this lip gloss is the BEST I’ve ever tried (anyone I’ve recommended it to has agreed.) All their products are free of parabens and artificial fragrance, making them the best option for all skin types (including sensitive skin.) You can read more about the importance of paraben free products here.
Burts Bees Facial Cleansing Towelettes ($5): Talk about bang for your buck. These ALL NATURAL cleansing towelettes are my favorite product to use for removing makeup and they’re so CHEAP! They have a bunch of fun scents to choose from too!
Kiehls Ultimate Strength Hand Salve ($15): I first tried this hand cream last year and was beyond impressed. If you live in a cold climate then it’s likely you’ve suffered from dry, cracked hands. This heavy-duty formula is the richest and longest lasting hand moisturizer out there. Forget having to reapply – this cream will last you ALL DAY LONG. Learn more here.
The Perfect Bite Set ($25): What girl doesn’t love lipstick?! This sample set has a variety of colors, ranging from nude to deep red (with a couple colors in between!) A fun option for experimenting with new colors and finding your favorites!
TRESemme Tres Two Extra Hold Hairspray ($1.50): This hairspray is the last (and cheapest) item on my list, but certainly not the least. It’s pretty amazing, especially for the price. It has a super strong hold without making your hair sticky or crunchy. I always keep a few travel size bottles on hand to throw in my purse for spritzing on the go!
